There's no limit to the riches I want to see.
I met this man, he said he would do anything for me.
I was a little nervous, but I went there anyway.
I never guessed that he would smile at me and say:

HELLO, I WELCOME YOU INTO MY HUMBLE STORE.
I'VE GOT LOTS OF MERCHANDISE, I'VE GOT EVERYTHING AND MORE.
TODAY WE HAVE A SALE ON WELFARE, AN OFFER YOU CAN'T IGNORE.
IT WILL PUT YOU ON A PEDESTAL, SEPARATE YOU FROM THE POOR.

His ice-cold heart and smiling face in perfect symmetry.
His gratitude increased, as I bought my destiny.
His smiling mask fell off, I saw the horns upon his head.
I won't forget the moment when he laughed at me and said:

HELLO, I WELCOME YOU...

I guess you'll say stupidity isn't easily measured, but my degradation was unbearable.

HELLO, I WELCOME YOU...
